    On XL (Long) Ties and Knots

    Good day all, Having gone a number of years without having purchased any new "formal" mensware, I am now in the midst of a wardrobe update. One of the (many) items on my list are neckties. I wanted to ask the group about how XL (long) neckties are cut vs a standard length tie, and if...

    Can Anyone Find This Tie?

    Gentlemen, I came across this photo of a necktie during an image search for one of a different pattern, and was wondering if anyone knew offhand where it could be found. The image stated that it was an Alan Flusser tie made in the United States, but I am not certain whether that description...

    Cary Grant's tie

    Cary Grant is wearing a beautiful tie in this picture. It's a very subtle blue grey color I can never find (everything I've seen is either too blue or too grey). Does anyone know where to find a tie like it? It coordinates elegantly with his navy suit.

    High-end neckties without screaming "designer"

    I am looking to buy some high-end neckties that people would be able to recognize as expensive if they are familiar, but I don't want to wear a tie with a designer logo plastered all over it. Are there any real nice tie brands that the finely-tuned eye would recognize?

    Difficult Necktie ID

    I know that this is going to be a pretty difficult question to answer, but I thought I'd try anyway. I just finished seeing Ghost Writer, and, aside from the merits of the movie, I can't get over trying to figure out what necktie Tom Wilkinson is wearing in his main scene in the movie. It's...

    My custom tie-rack [How do you store yours?]

    I made this a year ago because I was very dissatisfied with what was available for tie storage in the marketplace. I like to think of it as more of a display for my ties, a piece of furniture if you will [the black watch dust cover is one of my favorite touches] . I'm currently working on...
